Local Adventures: Brookside Gardens, Spring 2013

It’s been a couple of months since I’ve been to Brookside — actually, it’s probably been more over a year — and I thought it would be nice to head on up there to play around.

The day was perfect, both in terms of weather and in the lack of a crowd. I don’t necessarily avoid places with crowds, but sometimes, I find myself becoming shutter shy when I see too many folks. It’s not that I’m shy of taking photographs around people, it’s just that I don’t want to get in their way of enjoying the same things that I am enjoying. Funny, right?! This day was so perfect, I actually fell asleep under a tree for a while!

But, anyhow…I spent a considerable amount of time here — being entertained by nature. I wanted to try something different this round too; photographing things from their point of view or even that of something smaller. These were mostly done with flowers and I need to work on my technique a little bit more. The focusing is what seems to be the most difficult; there many many many blooper shots.

With all that being said, enjoy the shots and thanks for stopping by.
